No, it doesn't, as Uri already pointed out.

But hey, here is sth we could test and maybe even have some fun.

I take it you have some good opening book and of course you have Diep, a strong
program that finished 3rd in the WCCC. We both use some reasonably fast single
processor and time control maybe 60 0 .

I pick some random commercial engine and let it play without any book against
Diep.

As you might have similar doubts as me about your chances to really achieve much
with black in the opening, you should have the white pieces, the critical test.

If "my" program has zero chances to win because it has no book, you should
manage to show in 4 games ( I won't switch program, might switch some engine
setting though). If you can't, then "my" program is clearly not without chances.
